70. TRILOGY: THE WEEPING MEADOW
dir. Theo Angelopoulos
world premiere 2004
U.S. release 2005
Because even though U.S. arthouses and critics would rather die than truly rally behind an Angelopoulos film,
his painterly and prodigious works help enormously to restore a sense of awe to the cinema. If his style rarely changes
much between projects, its mythic muscularity is always welcome.
